Help our future nurses

APNA's Student Nurse Placement Pilot Project

If you have any questions, please email Julie Bartosy via Additionally, if you know of any other Victorian practices or primary health care workplaces that would be interested in hosting a student nurse, please give them a nudge and share this webpage.

Due to COVID-19, Monash University second year nursing undergraduates are struggling to secure their clinical placement hours.

APNA is lending a hand to coordinate placements at primary health care workplaces—including general practice, aged care and community health—across Victoria.

With the help of the many amazing workplaces who have put their hand up to help, the program is off to a flyer—having already secured more than 60 students a placement in primary health care

We invite you and your workplace to take part in the project.

As an incentive, your workplace will receive $300 per student you host.

To host a student:

  1. There needs to be nurse supervisor each day of the placement (job share is acceptable)
  2. The nurse supervisor needs to be a registered nurse or nurse practitioner

Each placement lasts for three weeks (15 days). There are three placements remaining to choose from, though we'd love you to say yes to all of them. The next placement begins on Monday 23 November 2020 so get in touch with Julie -

Sky's the limit on how many students you host. Whether it be one or 15 students, you're contributing to someone's career and Australia's future health care. 

Below are some useful resources to get your head around the project details:

We hope you can help support the next generation of Australia’s nurses.
